So you think all journalists are nothing but reputation breaking cowards? Here are some names for you:

Edward R. Murrow
Martha Gelhorn
James Cameron
Seymour Hersh
Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein
John Pilger
Veronica Guerin
Robert Fisk
Greg Palast
Philip Knightley
Eric Schlosser

They've all worked to expose injustices and cover ups. Go off and do some reading before you spout off with any more of your ill-considered, half-digested and regurgitated conspiracist fucking garbage. I'm out of patience with it.

YES ,scotty ,there are good journalists left! There are also many career rotten journalists ,this fact has nothing to do with conspiracy ! For sure it all happens uot of nowhere for no reason ,any one with a dim intelligence can confirm it whentey are not too tired to wonder . But hey now ,it's a free world out there ,isn't it ? Frankly ,couldn't care less who agree or disapprove here . Bullshit phonies ,who think because they talk about GD ,they figured out all the rest of it as well ! Bunch of hypocrits ,you would all have the right to say any garbege talk here whenever it suits any of youu ,but anything i could ever say can only be wrong ? Who say ? You say ? Well ,take a hike ,boys ,as boring as you can get here ,i'll keep saying anything i darn please ! NA !!!

I enjoy Doonesbury as much as anyone and like what Trudeau does. but I don't think even his biggest fan would call him an investigative journalist, which is really what I was going for.
